Water avens is one of the more modest plants we sell. It has a delicate bell shaped pinkish flower and only grows to around 30cm. It's widespread in the UK outside of southern England. Geum rivale likes moist rather than wet conditions, but will grow happily in semi-shade and flowers continuously throughout the summer, so works well as an understory plant. It's related to wood avens, but to my mind a more attractive plant.

We offer water avens as either bare root or in 4cm or 5cm size plugs, depending on availability.

Please note that these plants are only available on a seasonal basis. The nursery grows new stock from autumn to early spring, so we do not deliver over this period.
